I have been an Assistant Professor of Economics at UNC Chapel Hill since 2017. I am a macroeconomist interested in search and matching and its applications to labor market dynamics, monetary theory, and asset markets.

My recent research has focused on the quantitative analysis of unemployment dynamics in the US, with a particular emphasis on the role unemployment insurance has played, and the implications for optimal policy.

I earned my undergraduate degrees in Mathematics and Economics from the University of Chicago, and my Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Pennsylvania. I taught at Amherst College prior to joining UNC.
